Jehosophat was a man of unknown species.


Jehosophat was a figure from ancient history, notorious enough to remain known in the present-day through the comical swear "jumpin' Jehosophat", which was once employed by Ferdie Fieldmouse. During his notorious duel with Madam Mim during the Dark Ages, the enchanter Merlin had already sworn by Jehosophat.

Behind the scenesEdit

Jehosophat is first mentioned in the 1958 written story The Art Collectors, and his name is also uttered by Merlin in 1963's The Sword in the Stone. In real life, Jehosophat, or more properly Jehoshapat, is a Biblical figure of a just King.
